Thierry Marx tops annual list of highest-paid chefs

In 2018 it looked like the chef’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 20) that Marx is the highest-paid chef in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French chef has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Marx Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Paris Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermarx - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Thierry) and a fashion line called “Thierry Marx Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Thierry fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
